DreamerAge: 46 | Bald Class: Email Me One megasession of total number of Grafts 3834/Hairs 8192.
1 hair = 473 grafts, 2 hair = 2650 grafts, 3 hair = 565 grafts and 4-6 hair = 146 grafts. So the total is 3834 grafts. The number of hairs is 8198.
I have decided now to continue daily, Mintop Forte (Minoxidil 5%) twice 1 ml and Finpecia 1 mg (Indian version of Propecia) especially for crown area which is not covered with current HT.
My Hair Loss StoryI have been losing my hairs for more than decade now since my early 20’s and now reached Norwood level 5a. In the past from time to time tried different oils, lotions, minoxidil, propecia etc. however I wasn’t consistent with minoxidil, propecia which worked on me to some extent. I had extensive hair loss, rather than quoting receding hairline in my case it was missing hairline
How has my hair loss affected me?
Initially in early twenties I used to be more worried about my hairloss however later on after trying different medicines, oils I accepted the reality and stoped worrying. However with positive results from Minoxidil and Propecia again I started thinking about hairs :-)
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
Minoxidil 5% and Propecia has worked on me to someextent in front area as well, however I was not consistent with these two. Now I have started this 2 medicines again and decided to continue to suppliment HT, I expect that they will give my HT more fuller look.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
I am happy with Dr. Path and his team for the whole experience and results so far. Good hairline and coverup and ultra refined procedure.
On 16th April, morning 10 am I went to Dr Path's Clinic and his assistant physician Dr. Radha examined me and did all regular checkups, test etc. and we discuss about HT, number of grafts, hairlines etc., she explained me all issues very well. Dr Path finally drawn hairline. Finally after lunch and rest surgery began at around 3pm which went on till 11:30 pm at night. I have avoided food in between, however consumed water in 2-3 short breaks. I was given sleeping pills during the procedure so most the time I slept nicely. At least I haven't experienced in major pain, there was slight pain when they inject for anasthesia that it.
At 12 pm I left his clinic after some tea and snacks. They also gave my pills for antibiotic, to avoid swelling and sleeping pills. Next day I went to the clinc where my receipient area was cleaned they also explained me how care should be taken for first few days while cleaning which I continued with Jhonson baby shampoo.
Good thing was I never experiend any swelling, sleeping problem or bleeding after surgery.
Total 3834 Grafts (8192 hairs)
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
start with Propecia, Minoxidil for 1-2 years and then opt for HT if you feel necessary.
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
Atleast now for me it is 15th day after HT, however the whole experience has put positive effect/feeling on me.
My general advice and suggestions.
Try to stabilize hairloss with whatever suites you, could be Propecia, Avodart, Minoxidil for 1-2 years, at the same time do your research on net, do enough saving and decide on HT Surgen with good exprience and proven track record. Give sufficient time and understand this whole process and then go for HT.
